This is 27 year-old Mabinty K.. She is married and has three children ages 3, 7, and 11. In 2006, Mabinty established her used clothing business. She began her business because she wanted to be self-employed. Working six days a week and seven hours a day, she earns about Le 450,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000 in order to buy additional used clothing. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profits by approximately Le 350,000. In the future, Mabinty plans to educate her children to college level, buy a commercial vehicle for additional profit making, and become a supplier to other retailers. She thanks you for your support.
